Consultant in Paediatric Gastroenterology

Job reference: 149271
Location: Royal Hospital for Children
Hours Per Week: 40

The Women & Children’s Directorate (An Acute Operating Division of Greater Glasgow & Clyde, NHS Board) is a world leader in the care of child and maternal health services. Located in the new south hospitals complex in Glasgow, the Royal Hospital for Children hosts many national and regional specialist services.

The Directorate also supports an extensive array of community child health services.

The New Children’s Hospital opened in June 2015. These jobs represent an expansion in existing consultant work force to become part of a team of 7 consultants within the department of paediatric gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition (PGHN).

This post have been created to maintain excellence and support an expanding workload in PGHN care in a dynamic, research active and internationally recognised department.

Candidates should be trained in general paediatrics and ideally will have spent at least 3 years in approved posts/programmes in PGHN.

Applicants must have full registration with the General Medical Council and a licence to practice medicine in the UK.

Applicants must have full GMC registration, a licence to practice and be eligible for inclusion in the GMC Specialist Register.  Those trained in the UK should have evidence of higher specialist training leading to a CCT or eligibility for specialist registration (CESR) or be within 6 months of confirmed date of the interview.  Non-UK applicants must demonstrate equivalent training.

The job plan is negotiable and will be agreed between the successful applicant and the Clinical Director.  NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde initially allocates all full time consultants 10 PAs made up of 9 PAs in Direct Clinical Care (DCC) and one core Supporting Professional Activities (SPA) for CPD, audit, clinical governance, appraisal, revalidation, job planning, internal routine communication and management meetings.  The precise allocation of SPA time and associate objectives will be agreed with the successful applicant and will be reviewed at annual job planning.   Once the candidate has been appointed, more time may be agreed for activities such as undergraduate and postgraduate medical training, which takes place outside direct clinical care, as well as research and/or management.  These activities must be specifically and clearly identified and be agreed with the candidate and desired by the department.
